Nest is designed as a direct-indirect pendant luminaire. The body is simple in its design; yet the luminaire has a functionality in its elegant oval stucture. The interconnection piece allows two luminaires to be connected architecturally; thus creating direct and indirect lighting applications. The name of the luminaire “Nest” comes from this interconnection piece as it serves as a nest to the luminaire housing. The same housing used for direct and indirect parts, thus creating efficiency and economies of scale from one housing. Though minimalistic in its design, the luminaire can hold all electrical components within including the driver and emergency kit and battery. The housing is made of aluminium-a recyclable material. Nest is an energy-efficient LED pendant, with a long life time of 50.000 hours. LED is used as light source to benefit from energy savings and long lifetim. Different color options can be applied both to the luminaire and interconnection piece allowing the luminaire to be integrated with architectural application. Luminaire can also be used as a stand-alone luminaire only as direct or indirect lighting without the interconnection piece.
